 1) What “Study plan submission/elective courses” means

The study plan of the degree course includes some elective courses to reach the 120 ECTS credits necessary to graduate. The elective courses correspond to a total amount of 18 ECTS credits (6 compulsory ECTS credits to choose during the first year and 12 ECTS free elective credits during the second year).

2) Who has to submit the study plan choosing the elective courses and which learning activities it is possible to choose

 It is possible to check the sector and the syllabus of each course at the following webpage

If a student chooses a course offered by another degree course,  it is necessary to check if it is possible with the support of the Didactic Secretary Office. In case you would like to choose a learning activity taught in a degree course with limited number of places a specific permission is required by the degree course where the course is taught.

Furthermore, please note that the disciplines that are part of an integrated course cannot be chosen individually. 

Information for students who completed a study period abroad: students who put elective credits with the indication of the sector only in their learning agreement, must submit in their online study plan. It is not possible to select the credits as they are indicated in the learning agreement (for ex. 15 ECTS credits of SECS-P/08). Therefore, it is necessary to select some “backup” courses. Then, if the student asks for the recognition of all the 12 elective credits at the end of the experience abroad, it will not be necessary to complete the “backup” exams and it will be possible to ask to the student administration office to delete them. On the contrary, it will be possible for the student to take the “backup” exams indicated in the online study plan.
